With the impending birth of my first child, I thought it was about time that I got my self a camcorder. I don't know too much about them so I'm happy for any advice. I was thinking about a DVD Camcorder for ease of use but most things that I have read seem to recommend sticking with Mini DV. I envisage that I will be recording lots of footage and then editing on my PC and then burning it to DVD. It would also be nice to get decent still images from it too.
